Afternoons well spent. // . I’ve been traveling a bit recently. I love to travel – experience new places. But traveling also renews my perspective on home. It may be difficult to get to. It certainly doesn’t have all of the amenities of a city. But what Hatteras gives me is peace, solitude, and afternoons like this one. Can’t put a price tag on that. . 📷 © @danielpullen #danielpullen #danielpullenphotography #hatterasphotographer #hatterasphotography #obxphotographer #outerbanksphotographer #visitobx #visitnc #hatteras #capehatteras #obx #homesick4hatteras #hatterasisland #hatterasnc #outerbanks #ourstatemagazine #nationalgeographic #capehatteras #nationalparks
